Rust: Arctic Research Base. What You Need to Know
The Arctic Research Base was a new monument added to Rust in February 2022 during the Arctic Update.
The Arctic Research Base can only spawn in the arctic Biome. It won’t generate on any server without it.
These are some images of the Arctic Base in Rust.
The Arctic Research Base, a monument dungeon, is a hotspot of loot with many crates scattered throughout its buildings and labs. The Arctic Research Base is full of scientists who are willing to shoot at any moment, just like the Oil Rig. Scientists can now heal themselves as of the Arctic Update. But only in this monument.
Players will also feel the cold around the base, so they need heaters. As if all that weren’t enough, Polar Bears can be found in the arctic biomes.
Arctic Research Base is the only place in Rust where players can locate Snowmobiles. This new vehicle is perfect for snow exploration. To unlock the container that contains them, players will need to solve a blue keycard puzzle. The other container will include a red keycard.
